We stopped at the highly recommended Sunset restaurant for a drink and appetizer in the late afternoon. The staff was welcoming, service was great but the VIEW was breathtaking. I wish we could have stayed to watch the sunset. Next time!

Hi Wesley, I'm sorry that the situation was not handled properly. Perhaps the misunderstanding was that who ever welcomed you thought you were there for the Happy Hour which takes place at the bar and the lounge. We serve dinner in the restaurant side and...More

The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some
areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush,
green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped
shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern

towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still
feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted
